Shell eggs are eggs that are still in the shell as distinguished from dried or powdered eggs. There are 2 different cooking time/temperature requirements for shell eggs. If the shell eggs will be hot-held for service, they should be cooked to 155°F for 17 seconds. But if the shell eggs will be served immediately, they only need to be cooked to 145°F for 15 seconds. Other foods that should be cooked to 155°F (68°C) for 17 seconds:
- Ground meat—including beef, pork, and other meat
- Injected meat—including brined ham and flavor-injected roasts
